That didn't come out quite right.

What I meant to say is that the connectivity to your company is one part of 
the issue, and an important one.  But we need to consider the impact that 
these policies would have on the entire Internet, and you are just focusing 
on one piece of it.

I agree that it would reduce the effectiveness of your multi-homing.  I am 
trying to point out that it is probably a bad idea to potentially sacrafice 
the good of the entire network so that multi-homing for a few companies 
will work better (assuming the whole network does not shutdown, in which 
case it won't work at all).
